We would welcome your skills and help with some prep for a house renovation and general maintenance
On Canna there is a population of 17 people and my family are from this island.
The nearest point on the mainland is Mallaig where you get the ferry from and the nearest town is Fort William.
There is a small cafe/bar in the summer and a community shop and we have a great harbour with lots of visiting boats and yachts. Canna is a great place for wildlife, birdwatching, fishing, kayaking.
Skills that would be helpful - knowing how to use a strimmer, chainsaw, gardening and general outdoor skills.
Gardening - collecting seaweed for manure, clearing ground, digging, weeding, grass cutting, planting
Maintenance: painting, cleaning, clearing ground
This also gives you the opportunity to spend some time on our lovely island of Canna and be part of the community here.
We are used to visitors and we just want people to come, enjoy our island and have a very positive experience of being here.
It would be great to welcome some volunteers to our island. I have several projects that I need help with.
House renovation: I need the old building cleared out and the rubbish cleared from the area around the old building
I have 2 small cabins next to my house - one for a bedroom and the other had a toilet, shower and a cooking/eating area.
We will supply all food and you will cook your own meals.
The little island has lots of wildlife and has loads of archeology, culture and local heritage. Volunteers can also spend time fishing,kayaking or just walking and relaxing.
